We stayed here for 4 nights - our first time in Thailand. We loved it!!! From the moment I started to book the accommodation on line to the very second we checked out, the staff were wonderfully helpful. The manager had sent through (via email) a map written in Thai to show the taxi driver so he would not take us to the 'other' Lamphu hotel. We arrived in BKK about 9pm. A staff member came out to the road to assist with our bags; refreshing juice was given before checking in; paper work dealt with very quickly and just as quickly we were in our rooms. We had decided to place our 17 year old daughter in her own room and requested that she be immediately next to us; this was catered for without any problems. During our stay, ALL staff members were extremely helpful, polite, friendly and assisted where possible. They also advised us (and put up notices) about the local scams etc by taxi and tuk tuk drivers and helped to arrange a tour to the River Kwai ...which was the greatest fun and very good value for money.
I read some feedback about other guests not being understood, and complaints that the staff didn't speak/understand English. I can only say that we did not experience this but then we also respected the fact that we were visitors in a foreign country and did not expect everyone to speak our level of English.
The rooms were neat, clean, cosy and comfortable. Our rooms were on the 'wrong' side of the motel (not over looking the pool) but there was nothing wrong with this at all. They were cleaned every day and the bar fridge re-stocked. Water was complimentary. The breakfast was superb and whilst I and my daughter enjoyed traditional Thai meals my husband was able to indulge in bacon and eggs - all tastes were accommodated. Bar and restaurant for other meals etc was also excellent.
Location was also perfect. As per many reviews - 20 minutes to Grand Palace; 10 minutes to Khoa San Rd; wonderful bar on the corner (Rolling Bar) with live music; pier about 10 minutes; plenty to look at on your walks. Taxis and tuk tuks easily accessible. It has the ideal combination of being close to the action but also being far enough to be quiet and relaxing.
Will definitely be staying here again.
